The right thing is rarely easy

Many things that matter are not easy. Even in the day-to-day.

Making time to help someone is not easy.

Speaking up when you witness racist or sexist behaviour is not easy.

Choosing not to scream every time your kids get on your nerves is not easy.

Sitting down with somebody to express your discomfort is not easy.

The point is that if you always seek the easy, if you try to find shortcuts in most situations, if your first thought is about how you can save some time, some money, some energy, it’s very likely you will often end up doing the wrong thing.

Nobody likes the version of themselves that does the wrong thing more often than the right one.
